- What's it all about?
Wikipedia 0.7 is a release version of Wikipedia, to be published on CD/DVD and possibly on paper, coinciding with the end of year holiday period. The aim is to give the benefits of Wikipedia to those people who have access to a computer but not easy or fast access to the Internet.
Much preparation work has been done by the Wikipedia editorial team, who have used a bot to create a shortlist of articles for each wikiproject. The bot's criteria were based on factors like number of hits, and number of links, each article received. The list contains 1133 of the Military history WikiProject's most visited and most linked to articles. They range from featured to start-class and vary considerably in quality.
The purpose of our review is to check that the articles are of suitable quality and are free of templates. By default, the bot will take the latest version of the article but we can instead select better versions, as well as suggesting deletions and additions. The approach we have adopted varies, depending on the class of the article.
The Milhist master list has been divided up into forty-five worksheets each of twenty-five articles. We estimate a worklist will between one and three hours to complete. As time is off the essence, we are aiming to complete the review by Sunday, 28 September, and once it is over, it is likely we will try to work borderline articles up to the requisite quality.
NB: The W0.7 links master list has now been updated.
What to do with the checklists ...
The quality threshold for inclusion is low (the W1.0 team have selected by popularity/importance rating). Most tags (citations, cleanup etc) will be removed from the articles before release. Apparently, quality ratings will not appear in the release version.
Because of the limited time available, the Milhist criterion for inclusion is "can we live with this"? In practical terms, this translates to C-Class. This means any article which scores three "yesses" or more on the B-Class checklist. Articles achieving this level will not be opposed by Milhist. Please complete the B-Class checklist for any Start-class articles on which this hasn't been done to determine whether three yesses apply.
Please look at the quality class of the article and read the "Comments" column. Decide whether it meets the criterion for inclusion (in most cases it will) and update the "Action" column with the following tags:
- "KEEP" - this means we will not oppose inclusion.
- "USE LINK" - this means the link will be passed to W1.0 as the version to use. The links will be passed to W1.0 altogether once the checklists are finished.
- "IMPROVE (reason)" - reasons will mostly be "refs" or "review" (see "Other action" below).
- "REPLACE" - this is used only for articles which are below C-Classa[›] and covers two actions. The first is that it will trigger a removal recommedation (this cannot be guaranteed as the final decision is not ours). Suitable replacements will be recommended to the W1.0's review team as a separate exercise.
Other action: any FAs which no longer meet FA standards may be referred to Featured article review. Milhist A-class and GA can also be referred for review at WP:MHR#A-CLASS or Wikipedia:Good article reassessment. If you feel like doing this yourself, please do so, otherwise leave a note here. The reviews will often lead to the article being improved.
^ a: The article is better developed in style, structure and quality than Start-Class, but fails one or two of the criteria for B-Class. It may have some gaps or missing elements; need editing for clarity, balance or flow; or contain policy violations such as bias or trivia.
